. i also want to thank katie miller and rebecca from my office and consistently at the forefront and in the community and common sense media who became a partner last year and katie and her people and rebecca and the school district we started public information a year ago and my partner richard carranza who is an incredible superintendent, someone i am proud to work with. first of all let me tell you that bullying takes many different shapes. it can be physical, it can be emotional, it can be verbal. i can tell you having been a non english speaking student and immigrant early on and quite frankly times that were very different that we were bullied all the time and didn't know it was bullying and right to the point i actually dropped out of school, and i think it's also important to recognize it's not kids on kids and sometimes adults are part of it, and sometimes unfortunately staff members are part of it. i remember being accused early on by a science teacher and told i was using lsd and i didn't know what it was at the time. i was in the class for three months and didn
proud to join supervisor cohen in that support. i also know that rebecca rolf, executive director of the lgbt center which provides services to low income people, was here but due to the length of the last item had to leave and i know she feels strongly about this and i agree with her. i think mr. wolff would provide an excellent perspective on the market-octavia cac as i mentioned, i work with the cac frequently and i think he would bring a terrific perspective. i also think the lgbt center, having the center directly connected into the cac makes a lot of sense as we have more development in that part of market street the lgbt center is going it play a more and more significant role in the community so i think it makes sense to have someone from the center on there, which is why i was excited when mr. wolff applied. i think he does work with low income people, the center certainly works with an enormous number of low income people in the lgbt community and otherwise and i also want to respond to a point that supervisor kim just made about what qualifies as low income. this is a
